...seems to have used "The Okeh Laughing Record" which is VERY similar to this but uses different music. In fact, it's also here on Archive, so you can decide for yourself: http://www.archive.org/download/Okeh/Okeh-OkehLaughingRecord.mp3
Subject: Button Buster
This exact concept was done (ripped off?) by Spike Jones. As one reviewer said, "limited appeal", but as a trombone player I'm one that did get a kick out of it (although I can understand how it could grate on anyone elses nerves!)
This is a stupid idea. The record drags on and on. There is nothing novel or creative about it-even for 1923. Perhaps it is good for an amusement park.

The Spoiled Coronet recording is used in a 1950s Walter Lantz produced Tex Avery directed short, Shhhhhh!
1923! This site is quite an education.
Subject: Limited Appeal
Quite a good reproduction with a little scratching but of limited appeal I should think.
